It crazy what a couple of months of counseling with Saju have done for me. Saju is respectful, very helpful and never judgmental; he always listens and has helped me through so many issues. Would recommend Saju to anyone.

Written by A.N. on Jul 01, 2018 after counseling with Saju for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and grief

I feel so grateful for Saju Abraham's counsel and wisdom. He listens intently with compassion and empathy and gives advice when appropriate. I am learning a lot from him about how to be a more responsible adult and to be grateful for what I have. He is wise beyond his years, but still young enough to be open minded and flexible. He also shares openly his own challenges when they are relevant to something I am experiencing. This helps me see that he is a human being as well who has overcome his own fears through therapy and following the advice he shares with his patients.

Written by C.H. on May 19, 2018 after counseling with Saju for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and intimacy-related

Saju is is very understanding and non judgemental when it comes to many different struggles you may be having. I've spent over a year with him, and enjoyed discussing many different topics on different situations, and he makes sure they are all explained in depth to give the most understanding. He is also ready to listen to any questions or comments you may have without adding too much information or too many details into what is being delt with. If you ever end up drifting away from your task at hand or whatever you are dealing with he wil continue to check in with you which helps keep you focused on what it is you need to do to help you through your situation.

Written by B.R. on Apr 30, 2018 after counseling with Saju for 5 months on issues concerning relationship

I have been working with Saju for close to seven months now. I don’t know where I would be right now in my life without his help. I am so glad I reached out and even happier that I ended up with Saju! He is so easy to talk to. He gives great perspective when I need it and is always checking in to see how things are going. I really couldn’t have asked for a better experience with him & BetterHelp.

Saju is there when you need him and its very comfortable to talk to him

Written by K.E. on Mar 28, 2018 after counseling with Saju for 6 months on issues concerning relationship, family, and intimacy-related

One of the most important things I find in Saju is that he is non-judgmental. He listens, asks questions and listens to the answers, and lets me talk without interruption. He responds quickly when I contact him, and is quick to schedule a call if it is necessary.

Written by C.H. on Mar 22, 2018 after counseling with Saju for 9 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I had a great experience with Saju.
He helped me adress lots of things that were basically out of control in my life.
He helped me understand once more this is my life, and not a life owned by others. He taught me how to set boundaries and be more assertive and to start addressing my problems instead of allowing them to crush me.

Thank Saju, you always have a place in my heart.

Written by D.A. on Mar 03, 2018 after counseling with Saju for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping, self esteem, and career

Saju is an excellent counselor and is helping me navigate a rough patch. His experience across a wide range of areas including life transitions, relationships, anxiety, depression is a great asset. He is non-judgmental but also not afraid of calling things out that I might not have seen otherwise.

Written by M.A. on Oct 15, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, sleeping, parenting, self esteem, career, and bipolar

Saju is amazing! I tried a couple of psychiatrists but never felt 100% comfortable and listened too. When Betterhelp matched me up with Saju it was different, Saju really listens and makes you feel important. He has helped me a lot with my anxiety and being aware of my behaviours and where they are coming from. I strongly recommend Saju for others who are looking for help!

Written by C.H. on Aug 29, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, family, intimacy-related, self esteem, and anger

I just began working with Saju, but he presents very well and seems very knowledgeable with regards to how to assist me with my issues. He is direct and may not always tell me what I want to hear, which is a refreshing change of pace because he makes me think outside of the box. I would highly recommend Saju.

Written by R.A. on Aug 02, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, intimacy-related, sleeping, self esteem, and anger

Saju is very easy to discuss issues with and has helped by offering us some books to read together. Glad we're building a health relationship that we both can trust in. This helps my relationship with my spouse by letting her know I'm trying to be better. Saju has started me off on the right track. - Thanks

Written by J.A. on Jul 21, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, sleeping, self esteem, career, and bipolar

Saju is a great therapist he has helped me realize that there are two sides to a coin. Even when you just live on one side of the coin, it does not mean the other side does not exist. This has encouraged me to try new things and meet new people along the way.

Written by T.I. on Jul 16, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, sleeping, and self esteem

As a person who is very apprehensive with expressing myself and exposing my vulnerabilities, Saju provides security, comfort, treatment, and encouragement in this journey. He is very passionate about tackling the issues at hand and I totally appreciate it.

Written by N.A. on Jul 03, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 2 weeks

Saju is not my first counselor/therapist. I like him very much and would say that he compares favorably to my previous experiences. What I notice about him is his laser-like focus and concentration. He listens and pays attention to what I say in my written messages. I am feeling so much better after only two weeks.

Written by J.A. on Jun 28, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, intimacy-related, sleeping, self esteem, and anger

Saju has been extremely beneficial in my path to becoming emotionally healthy. He challenges me to journal my emotional health and responses to situations in my life. I feel like I have a therapy partner who understands me, understands my concerns and needs, and offers hope and enlightenment. I am learning tools to treat myself through our conversations. I enjoy being able to communicate with him via messages on BetterHelp and our twice monthly phone sessions.

Written by A.N. on Jun 27, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, intimacy-related, sleeping, self esteem, and career

Saju is a guy who is extremely good at what he does. He's helped me out a lot especially when I had no one to turn to, the fact that he was Indian, the same nationality I was made me feel extremely comfortable. I was extremely skeptical of how BetterHelp could help me from a counsellor who was so far away. It was good for its purpose and Saju helped me through some dark days. You know you're in good hands when you have Saju, and I'm all the more happy for it.

Written by K.I. on Jun 27, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, intimacy-related, self esteem, anger, and career

Saju doesn't glaze over block-issues such as depression, addiction, etc. He has a tailored insight to very specific issues such as Limeracy, which until now, I didn't think I'd find on BetterHelp having tried the site twice before. He replies everyday and really understands. He's been so quick to make a difference and a genuine passion for what he does makes him stand out. Finally found a good one!

Written by L.E. on Jun 23, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Saju is a wonderful counselor, taking time to ask questions to get at the heart of the issues. He not only has the training and experience as a counselor, but a great deal of wisdom, which is something you don't learn in school. I appreciate that he made sure of my level of comfort and Christian walk before connecting his advice to the Bible; his ability to dive deep into the Word has been a huge blessing to me. I highly recommend!

Saju's great—very practical and good at addressing issues one by one, and good at sensing when another issue might be on the horizon or lying beneath the surface. I experienced a huge relief when we worked through my main issue (social anxiety) and I use the tools and advice provided by Saju daily to see and feel a big difference.

Saju has been a wonderful help the last month. He has gone out of his way to schedule sessions with me when it was convenient for me. He has a lot of experience and seems very enthusiastic about his job and about helping people. He's happy to listen and help you ask those important questions of yourself. His positive demeanor is always nice as well! I would definitely recommend him as a therapist.

Saju is awesome...he is understanding and has no judgment or prejudice.

Written by T.R. on Apr 27, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and anger

Saju has been a huge help for me. For such a long time I always tried to deal with my issues in silence and Saju has helped me feel comfortable to deal with them directly and find peace and freedom. His recommendations on how to overcome addiction, anxiety, PTSD and shame have worked very well for me. What I like about Saju is he tailors your needs and develops strategies that work. I still have a long ways to go but I'm finding the confidence that I can overcome it all and find the peace I have long searched for.

Written by D.A. on Apr 18, 2017 after counseling with Saju for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, and sleeping

Saju is very smart and he has used that intelligence to give me helpful advice and new perspectives on life. He is very polite and makes me feel cared for, and he gives very thorough advice on the topics that I tell him about.
